Forum: etree Subject: New Streaming Interface (beta)

Buster Radio http://www.busterradio.com

I started to work on a new user interface for the Archive.org's live music archive and would love to get some feedback before I continue creating a user portal that would allow users to save favorite show or play lists.

Please remember that this is currently in beta that being said I have been using it for months on my own and I find it as a much better interface than what is currently available.

This application takes advantage of some modern browser technologies so please use Google Chrome or newer version Firefox and possibly a newer version of IE.

I am looking for any bugs, UI suggestion, or any other comment/critic.

Thanks

re: http://www.busterradio.com/#LazyRiver
- the wrong Lazy River band image is displayed, cross-connected incorrectly from last.fm
- the wrong Lazy River band details text is listed, cross-connected incorrectly from last.fm

- the correct Lazy River image and info come from the LMA - http://archive.org/details/LazyRiver
- I was the band's soundman and taper, and I am their archivist for the LMA
- there is only one "Lazy River" band listed on the LMA, that's my band, and last.fm.com can blow me
- your App correctly lists the three Lazy River band's items at the LMA from 1976
- each LMA item listed in your App links correctly to my band, correct setlists, and band image, and the player plays my band's music correctly

The above info is from one single test, for one band, one show, one song. I have tons of other music on The Archive.

I just tested one more of my other bands on the LMA, a band named Arabesque, from 1980. The info listed in your App, provided by last.fm, is complete bogus-BS-spam, as far as I'm concerned.

Please do not associate my tapes of bands archived to the LMA as being anything to do with bands by the same name listed on last.fm.com. I have spent six years archiving my thiry-five and forty-year-old tapes to The Archive. I have nothing to do with last.fm or other sites! Last.fm's info is pathetically incorrect via your App, and it's cross-connected to the LMA.

Sir, I urge you to fix this problem. Any help - just ask. Thank you very much.

Monty B Cowboy,
Thank you so much for taking a look at the site, this is exactly the type of feedback I was looking for.

The first thing that I am going to do is remove any last.fm code that I have added to this site. I had no intention of misrepresenting any band and apologize that I did so via Last.fm.

Thank you again for the feedback and thank you for sharing your tapes to LMA for everyone to enjoy.
